My Students

Our students are highly motivated, energetic, fun, and ready to move every day of the week! Our school is located in North Philadelphia and our students come from all areas of the city. They are starting Physical Education and our goal is to focus on fitness. We have incorporated a lot of mindfulness-based activities in our school and in all classrooms.

Our students are highly interested in reducing stress through yoga, team sports and other individual goal type exercises.

The opportunity to focus on mental, emotional and physical health while in a cooperative environment will help our students manage the challenges they face every day.

My Project

Get ready, set and bounce for a net score!

Future NBA players in the making!

I want my students to achieve basketball team sportsmanship and proper skills. Today urban students have hoop dreams, yet don't know all the proper form and drills to achieve these goals.

In our basketball camp, they will learn how to play the game on a team. The purpose would not be for individual goals but incorporate problem solving skills to win as a team and excel as a team player.

Success is determined by working together to make 3 pointers, backdoor cuts, ball reversal and more!
